You forgot to mention that Rufus can't use GPT partitioning under Windows XP ;)

Hi,

Really really need some help with this.

I have a Linx 10 and have followed all the instructions in post 1 but nothing works.

I can get in to BIOS by using a keyboard attached through OTG and USB hub and can see the USB drive but for the life of me i cannot get it to boot from the drive.

I am at my wits end. Please can someone throw me a lifeline here. I really would appreciate it.

Many thanks

Can you tell me if this will fix my Linx 10 Windows 10 rollback fiasco as my tablet is stuck in "restoring your previous version of Windows" loop please? It is reading from the sd card and wonder if I loaded the files onto this it would possibly make it work again?

Thanks for your help

Yes, this will roll it back to how it came out of the factory. You can't use the SD Card to boot however, you must use a USB drive (or an SD card connected to a USB reader).

I have tried booting from an sd card in a usb reader and it would not work.

Have your done this?

If so, how did you put image on SD card? Using Rufus?

Yeah, I do it all the time as I have an abundance of 8GB MicroSD cards and not that many USB drives themselves. I always use the SD cards in a USB reader as that way they appear to the Host OS as a USB drive and not an SD card.

Rufus, as you would expect, treats it exactly like a USB drive.

Hi all,

I downloaded and burned the linx10 iso to a USB.

I follow the steps as listed but the only restore option I get is windows 10

is this correct - id assumed a factory reset would return to windows 8.1

Cheers

P.S I trying to fix my borked linx10 that i upgraded to 10 without backing up first :oops: DOH!
